Large canvas, small canvas, a collection of different materials. We make sure that your work is safe, protected and stored in accordance to archival standards in our heat and humidity regulated premises whilst it is waiting to be digitised. Our courier can pick up the artwork directly from your doorstep and deliver it straight to us. If you prefer, you can organise your own delivery and if you are local enough, drop it off yourself!

It starts with care

Large canvas, small canvas, watercolours, oils, acrylics, photographs, pastels and ink. We make sure that your work is safe, protected and stored in accordance to archival standards at our premises whilst it is waiting to be digitised. Depending on the size of the artwork, we can arrange for a courier to pick up the artwork directly from your doorstep and deliver it straight to us. We always handle any art media as little as possible and our photographic scanning methods means that there is minimal contact with the artwork.

 
 
Our specialist equipment, digital expertise and colour management system make sure that the final image is a true representation of your work. Capturing the full tonal range of the canvas. All images are captured in RAW and stored in TIFF format for quality purposes. We also supply JPEG copies. These are transferred to you via an email link, but if you want them on a USB drive, we will be happy to help.

All images are captured in RAW, stored as TIFF to retain quality and JPEG copies can be supplied. We will also create a 'print ready' document, set up perfectly if you want to send it straight to the printers.

 
 
After the imaging process, we repackage your artwork, store it in our heat and humidity regulated premises and either use a preferred courier service or it can be picked up from our office. Our location can be found on our Contact page.

Returning your work

The digital versions of your art are transferred to you via an email link, but if you want them on a USB drive, or any other type of media, we will be happy to help.

Once you have your digital images, you can upload them to your portfolio website, reproduce your art using a professional print service or send them to your publisher for publication.
